This museum is one of the better ones in Jakarta but it still doesnt mean its food. The building is nice but aside from that there is not much to see or do. Wouldnt go again and only recommend if you really dont have much to do in Jakarta and need to kill some time.

The museum tells the history of Indonesia in the perspective of a banker or economist. It is great for college students majoring in economics and human sciences.The museum is the top choice for a museum in Indonesia and it's very well kept.

I was surprised that we were not required to pay at all to enter this museum. It has a lot of helpful crew at the entrance. The museum itself was a colonial building which is very interesting to see. You can learn about Indonesian banking and economic history here. We can easily walk from the train station to reach this... More

The museum tells you the history of the monetary system and the national bank, while it describes the entire modern Indonesian history, and how they became the actual independent country.

I do not understand why others give this museum a great review. It has an odd collection of bank articles and machines, arrayed in random order, and without any decent signage. Oh and not a docent to be found, ever. So there you are, clueless, and pretty much wandering freely through what could be an amazing museum, but isn't. So... More

This is one of the places you can do in half an hour and combine with other places in Kota. So in itself it is not a place you should make a huge detour for. But if you plan to visit the Old Batavia area, definitely do include this building. I always take visitors and the place still has this... More
